More pics!

Betty revealed a little more today... I was in the neighborhood so I stopped by to visit. They have finished the wet sand and buff and are essentially done. They are going to put the windows in and bumpers. I am going to spend the weekend putting the chrome on.

The color is spot on. More than I could have imagined. Woo hoo!

Now that the car is finally painted I've kicked the chrome polishing in to high gear. Betty has a lot of bling and it looks kinda grimy right now. Plus, she has a bunch of pieces (one of them pictured below) that have a silver inlay. I've seen a lot of Skylarks with the inlay taken off for an all chrome look. Having done the inlays, I can see why. It's a pain in the ass! It looks a lot better though so I will tough it out.

I used a polishing wheel on some stuff but found a soft cloth and some Dursol (Für alle metalle as it says on the tube) did wonders. Check it out:
